Job description

University of Colorado - School of Medicine


The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has an opening for a full time faculty at the rank of Instructor or above to provide hospitalist obstetrical care in the Southern Denver Metro area. CU Health is opening a new hospital in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. We are looking for board certified OB/GYN hospitalists to help with our growing need! This position will offer a great balance of work and life, giving you the flexibility to enjoy all of the activities Colorado offers (ski season is coming!).

The hospitalist is a critical part of our group practice model and will oversee perinatal safety at the birth center. The hospitalist will support all established obstetrical practices with care of their inpatients, as well as assume responsibility for all unregistered or walk-in patients. They will also work in conjunction with the maternal fetal medicine service to evaluate and manage hospital transfers, assist with obstetric triage, and provide backup as needed for midwifery and family medicine services. Additionally, they will cover unassigned gynecologic patients who require emergency care.

Hospitalists will be on duty, comprised of 12 to 24 hour shifts, and work as a team to provide continuous coverage. The successful candidate preferably has experience in a busy obstetrical practice. This position is primarily clinical, but there may be opportunity for academic responsibilities, such as the opportunity to supervise OB/GYN residents and medical students.


Minimum Qualifications:

Must be board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and hold an unrestricted Colorado Medical license.
